Princess syndrome..

Many of you might know of the so-called Princess syndrome, and if you have been you China or Hong Kong, I’m sure you have seen it. The so-called princess syndrome is the one disease I can not stand.. It really disgust me.. I’m sorry to all the sweet princesses out there, but that’s the way it is.
Anyways, the princess syndrome is really just something we call the really spoiled girls, which get everything they point at, and always have it their way. These girls are just really used to getting it their way, and if they don’t hell breaks out.. Like literally.. This is a list myhongkonghusband posted on a blog post a while ago, these are some of their symptoms;

  • Raising nonsense requests and demands to others
  • Advocating materialism
  • Having extreme emotions
  • Being self-indulgent, not logical
  • Not concerned about social issues
  • Not willing to take any responsibility (to shirk one’s duty)
  • Being self-centered
  • Desiring to be an authority
  • Yearning to rely on others
  • Having a strong sense of self-superiority
  • Being self-willed

This is just some of the descriptions of them, but I guess it sums up what they are really like.. Most people who either live in China, or have lived in China, probably know someone like this – I know quite a few of them, and I’m not a big fan of them. I went shopping with a princess like this one time, and she reaaaallyyy wanted to buy a LV bag and a pair of sunglasses, the only problem was that her boyfriend was not there, so she called him and told him to come straight away and bring money. She would not leave the place until her boyfriend came and bought her the bag and the sunglasses.. Lucky girl? I don’t think so..
That situation is nothing compared to this video, about a girl wanting her boyfriend to buy her a car.. The guy says that he can’t afford that because he got to buy them a flat as well..

So how do these “gentlemen” handle this? Of course, some of these girls have their prince that also like to spend and show off their money, but what if he is just an ordinary guy? They are even too afraid to stand up for themselves, and say no.. And when they do say no, the situation becomes even more complicated..
Today I came across an article on “We are lǎowài – 我们是老外 “ on facebook.


A man jumped to his death after a furious row with his girlfriend who insisted they go into another clothes shop.
CCTV shows Tao Hsiao, 38, escorting his girlfriend around a shopping mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu
province, east China.
After five hours Tao finally had enough and demanded to go home.
Tao Hsiao is carried out of the shopping mall on a stretcher but he was pronounced dead.
Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on going into one more shop where the was a special offer on shoes.
An eyewitness said: ‘He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more. ‘She started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument.’The shouting match ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven stories below causing shocked shoppers to flee in panic.
Emergency services arrived at the scene but Tao was killed immediately from the impact of the fall.
A shopping spokesman said: ‘His body was removed fairly quickly.
‘He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn’t hit anybody.
‘This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.’ ”
It is a shame that the situation can become this bad, I really wish this could be a wake up call to some of the Princesses, and that they could realize that they can be just as happy with a bag from H&M rather then a bag from Louis Vuitton or Gucci..

What is your opinion about these princesses? And what do you think about this man decision? I know it sounds like I really don’t like these girls.. I just wish they could all have a wake up call

  1. like my friend says… ‘bitches be crazy’ 😀 I think he should dump her, not jump. I can understand there are more men than women in China, but he had money to all the shopping so that means no matter how ugly etc. he was he could still find someone who wouldn’t behave like that.

  2. So true.. bitches be crazy, thats for sure! haha.
    Poor man… Hopefully this girl stopped being a princess after this .. >.< That should definitely be a wake up call! 😛 Sometimes ChenChen (my 老公) and I joke about this, and I go crazy like "BUY ME THIS!" , "BUY ME THAT", But its sooo boring to act like that, and so tiring.. How can they keep on like this!? haha

  3. Reading a story like that, it’s easy to say to the guy “grow a backbone”, because rarely – if ever – will a man here take that sort of behaviour. But of course this is China, where there are 125 men to 100 women, where women only care about material assets when guaging a suitor’s worth.
